OK everyone, I had my fusion Wednesday the 16th. Yes it is extremely painful but I made it and already feel better. I had 6 screw's 2 pins and a plate installed. That carved a peace of hip bone to help fuse everything. I can't walk too well just yet but really pushing my self. I guess I was scared for nothing. Now, don't take me wrong, it sucks and hurts like hell but I'm a Ranger and can push on. Thanks to all that helped me threw this.
